TIME Reveals Its Annual List of the 100 Most Influential People in the World

NEW YORK, April 19, 2018  — Today, TIME, a Mered­ith Cor­po­ra­tion (NYSE: MDP) brand, reveals the 2018 TIME 100, its annu­al list of the 100 most influ­en­tial peo­ple in the world. The issue has six world­wide cov­ers, each high­light­ing a mem­ber of the TIME 100: Jen­nifer Lopez, Nicole Kid­man, Roger Fed­er­er, Tarana Burke, Satya Nadel­la, and Tiffany Had­dish.

The TIME 100 fea­tures often-sur­pris­ing pair­ings of the list mem­bers and the guest con­trib­u­tors TIME selects to write about them.

The TIME 100, always a reflec­tion of its moment, looks quite dif­fer­ent than in the past,” notes TIME Edi­tor-in-Chief Edward Felsen­thal, cit­ing as one exam­ple the record 45 peo­ple on this year’s list who are under 40. “Influ­ence increas­ing­ly knows no sin­gle zip code and no min­i­mum age,” he adds, “and a com­mon theme in the trib­utes is how much we can learn from the young.”

Still, Felsen­thal notes, “The elder-as-teacher remains a pow­er­ful theme… See­ing suc­cess in some­one who looks like you, thinks like you, grew up like you can change the course of a life.”
